Just a couple weeks after launching the official LEGO Certified Store (LCS) website, Ban Kee Trading Inc. launched a loyalty program that rewards LEGO fans for shopping in LCS branches and will soon be applicable to the online store. This comes just in time for car enthusiasts to earn points by purchasing the new LEGO Creator Expert Porsche 911.
“Ban Kee has been the official distributor of LEGO in the Philippines since 2019 and we’ve seen how fans truly enjoy and cherish their experiences building with LEGO sets,” Ban Kee Trading, Inc. CEO Eric Bautista said. “With the recent addition of LEGO Certified Stores under Ban Kee’s portfolio, we’re excited to initiate programs that will bridge the connection between the brand and more Filipino fans such as launching the official online store.”
To sweeten the deal, free nationwide shipping is offered for a limited time for orders with exclusive LCS items labelled “D2C”. Orders within Metro Manila can be expected within three to five days while provincial orders will arrive within seven days.
To further enhance LEGO fans’ shopping experience, LEGO will be launching a membership program in partnership with leading loyalty program provider ZAP. Starting March 1, fans can start earning points for every PHP 100 spent depending on the member’s tier: Silver, Gold, or Platinum.
Customers can sign up for the membership program in any LCS branch through the ZAP app set up in the store’s tablet. All members will start at Silver with a chance to instantly upgrade to Gold by paying PHP 500 and earning an additional 50 points by filling out a customer information sheet.
Newly minted members can flex their pre-ordering perks with a 100% down payment within 24 to 96 hours depending on the membership tier when the LEGO Creator Expert Porsche 911 drops on March 20 for PHP 7,999.75.
If the newly released Porsche set isn’t up your alley, worry not as the LCS website carries all the items sold in LCS branches and offers a wide range of choices. Fans who missed out on snatching a set of the nostalgic Sesame Street LEGO set designed by Filipino filmmaker Ivan Guerrero have the chance to get it for themselves now that stocks have been replenished. So hurry while supplies last!
While members and non-members alike can reserve items from any LCS branch, higher tier members will get longer reservation periods of up to 96 hours. Gold and Premium members also get an exclusive discount of 5% and 10%, respectively, on the first week that a new LCS exclusive item is released. Needless to say, Platinum members enjoy the most benefits including free delivery of reserved and pre-ordered items.
